Default Elite Football League of India (EFLI)

First professional American football league in South Asia. First time hearing about this; looks promising:

http://www.efli.com/

I think it has a chance to succeed:

- unlike NFL Europa, which had mostly American players who weren't deemed good enough for the NFL, EFLI will have all-native players

- it has the support of the Indian government

- even if it manages to capture the interest of merely 10% of the subcontinent, that's already 120+ million people, the same number who watched the Super Bowl

As a new football fan it's exciting to see the birth of a new league

Looks promising indeed - got to be better than that self-important cricketing nonsense that calls itself IPL
